The easiest way to calculate turkey roasting times is by calculating 13 minutes per pound at 350°F for an unstuffed turkey (roughly 3 hours for a 12- to 14-pound turkey). If your turkey weighs between 21 and 22 pounds, cook it at:
- 425°F for four to four and a half hours.
- 400°F for four and a quarter to four and a half hours.
- 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 412 to 434 hours.
- 325°F for four and a half to five hours.
